Tom Brady‘s stolen jersey from this year’s Super Bowl has been recovered after being found in the possession of a member of the international media, according to the NFL.
The league announced Monday that the New England Patriots quarterback’s game-worn jersey from Super Bowl LI and another jersey, missing from Super Bowl XLIX, were retrieved after an investigation led by the FBI.
The jerseys were found in Mexico and currently are being authenticated by authorities, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said.

“I am happy my jerseys from SB 49 and SB 51 have been recovered, and I want to thank all of the law enforcement agencies involved. I know they worked hard on this case — and it is very much appreciated. Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive come from this experience.” -Tom Brady
